A man has been arrested and charged following a drugs recovery in Oban.

Officers stopped a vehicle on Dunollie Road in the town on Friday, February 9 for a road traffic offence.

Upon searching the car, officers discovered cocaine worth an estimated street value of over £25,000.

A 25-year-old man was arrested and charged in connection with drugs offences. He is due to appear before Oban Sheriff Court on Friday.

Inspector Lee Page said: “This was a significant recovery, and our officers are working hard every day to act on intelligence from the local community and disrupt the supply of drugs across the country.

“This activity highlights our continued commitment to tackling this harmful issue locally as well as the country’s Serious and Organised Crime Strategy.

“Support from members of the public is absolutely vital to our work and I would continue to encourage anyone with information about drugs in their community to contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
